Atlanta officials plan to install a John Lewis tribute wall at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

Atlanta city councilmember Andre Dickens discussed the project at the city council’s meeting Monday.

Hartsfield-Jackson International, the Atlanta City Council and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed plan for a wall to pay tribute to the civil rights icon and U.S. Representative on a wall near the domestic terminal atrium at the world’s busiest airport.

The tentative plan is for the $250,000 project to be designed, made and installed by Gary Lee Super Associates through a special procurement. Gary Lee Super Associates also did the installation called “A Walk Through Atlanta History” in the underground walkway between Concourses B and C at Hartsfield-Jackson.

The tentative schedule is for planning and design of the John Lewis tribute wall to continue until mid-2018, with fabrication and installation in the last half of 2018. It’s a preliminary plan that could be changed before being finalized by the city council, according to the airport.
